That was wonderful. Thanks.

Are you a fan of Screaming Trees? I'm not really into grunge like I used to be, but I always found that band to be one of the least appreciated Grunge bands. They helped start it in the '80s, years before the hugely popular bands like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, STP, etc.

Alice in Chains was always my favorite of the Grunge artists though. I loved their dark and heavy-metal style. They had talent.

In short, Mark Lanegan is the greatest musician in the world. Sure that's an obvious overstatement, but when you're listening to him, it sure feels like it at the time.

Deniro, I completley agree with you about the Screaming Trees very underrated band out of that scene. I really loved everything they did. My favorite was Soundgarden but AIC was a close second. It is weird though I find myself now not being able to listen to many of those bands except for a select few. I guess it is the same with Glam Metal, I was much m ore a fan of early metal like Maiden and Moterhead but some of those glam bands wre not too bad but I can only listen to a select few of them.

I'm very much the same in that most of the Grunge and Metal bands I used to obsess over, very infrequently get any attention from me anymore. On occasion I might hear some Sabbath or something on the radio, and I'll go back and listen to some old favorites. Although I really view Sabbath as more of a hard rock band than metal, which I associate more with bands like Maiden and Metallica.

When I went through my metal phase and grunge phase, I listened to all the grunge and metal artists you could think of (minus that death metal-type garbage). Nowadays, Alice in Chains is pretty much the only Grunge artist I can go back to and really enjoy as much as I used to. As for metal, although I also see Deep Purple as a hard rock band, I will always greatly enjoy them. I still enjoy Maiden, Motorhead, Megadeth, Metallica, Priest, etc. but don't get nearly the same enjoyment from them that I once did. I'm too mellow for that shit now. I'd rather hear a moving country ballad or something lol.
